A peaceful May Day rally turned violent near darkness in Seattle Washington. Police attacked the crowd using stun grenades and tear gas. Some protesters vented their rage at the system by smashing storefront windows. By around 9 P.M. at least 13 people were in custody on a variety of charges. Eight police officers reported being injured.

Some people blamed immigration rights activists for the disturbance.  The Occupy movement, while sharing some common goals with immigration rights activists, is an independent political movement generally protesting the control large corporations have over the government.  In addition, some factions of the Occupy movement advocate for the poor, who they refer to as the 99%.



Immigrant’s rights activists advocate for the fair treatment of people who have relocated in the U.S. including humane treatment by the police and a set of rules or laws which carve out a niche of the American Dream for the immigrants.



Like the Occupy movement, immigrant’s rights organizations encourage the election of government representatives with a more inclusive point of view. As a general rule, while immigrant’s rights protests may involve civil disobedience and arrest, they rarely involve property destruction. Immigrants realize they cannot carve out a place for themselves if they use aggressive means or destroy property.


Immigrants marched all over the country with large events in LA and Denver remaining peaceful.

Colorado Undocumented Fighting For Licenses

The Committee, Licences for all people in Colorado announced it is close to having the required votes for passage.  If the law goes into effect, undocumented immigrants will have a chance to obtain drivers licenses in the Rocky Mountain State.

The Committee says there are compelling reasons to grant immigrants a license. First, there is the issue of fairness.  Colorado has public transportation, but the wide open venues spread miles apart make public transportation impractical at times.  This is especially true when people have to pick up children, get to work, stop at the store and have it all done so the kids can do homework.  Immigrants who can’t drive find themselves relegated to inner city neighborhoods with few job opportunities or shopping alternatives.

Second, it is a matter of public safety.  Insurance can usually be had by most immigrants, even if they don’t have a license.  However, the quality of the insurance is often just enough to meet minimum standards.  Better insurance at more reasonable rates can be had by those who have a license.  Everyone does better when drivers are fully covered.

Public safety is also affected when police don’t have to spend extra time and assign additional patrol cars when an immigrant is stopped.  By simply presenting a license, the officer can identify the immigrant in the same manner they identify citizens.  That makes police work more efficient, allowing officers to spend the majority of time on more critical calls.

Immigrants who obtain licenses will have to take and pass a test. There is a benefit to all drivers when every driver studies the Colorado driving laws, which can be complicated.

Colorado is expecting the licensing effort to provide an economic boom to the state.  Immigrants spend money like all residents.  When they are able to effectively harness transportation, they can shop for the best prices rather than being relegated to buying fewer goods at higher prices in local shops.  Each sale, of course, generates sales tax which will help fund state services.

In order to qualify for the license, immigrants will have to provide proof they filed and paid state sales tax.  Most immigrants already file taxes, but those who have not filed will certainly pay taxes now.  Immigrants will also have to provide a solid proof of I.D.

Colorado citizens are safer when all resident drivers are

required to pass the written and practical driver’s exam, proponents say.

Even though the immigrants pay taxes, the license will be coded so that many state services remain unavailable to the immigrants.  In addition, the license won’t work for boarding airplanes, entering federally controlled buildings or for voting.

Colorado may soon become a forward looking state when it comes to immigrants.  Many people are re-evaluating the immigrant issue after the past election.  Some Republicans sensed the anti-immigrant rhetoric had changed the course of elections when citizen voters showed up to protest extreme and unfair anti-immigrant laws.

While some have always analyzed what immigrants cost the state, the new question is, what do immigrants contribute.  An honest answer in a few words is, a lot.  Most people, including Republicans and Democrats, feel there is a net benefit to having immigrants.   The benefit could extend into votes for whichever party is willing to take immigrant concerns into consideration during lawmaking sessions.

Even if the law passes today, there is an extensive lead time built into the law.  The lead time exists to give state administrators an opportunity to assess the costs of the new program, and to adjust fees so immigrants pay that cost.

While an obvious distinction will exist on non-citizen licenses, language has been built into the statute to prevent the licenses from being used to profile immigrants.  Officials, including voting referees and law enforcement, will be able to easily distinguish a citizen license from a non-citizen license.

However, an indication the person is a non-citizen by itself will not provide probable cause for further investigation by police officers absent additional evidence the officer has a reasonable suspicion a crime has been committed.  This should prevent the police from spending time on pointless stops in which the driver has done nothing to warrant the stop.

The Committee Licenses for All Coloradoans says they are short votes to get the measure passed in Colorado.  For this reason, they ask all people to contact their state legislator to urge the passage of the bill.

Granting licenses to Colorado immigrant residents will stimulate the economy, assure all licensed drivers are able to acquire quality auto insurance and return a sense to fairness in government for immigrants and the communities that depend upon the tax base immigrants help create.

Super Band, Super Suave, Subject of Documentary Film

Local Band Tells How To Start At Bottom, Rise In The Industry




Denver, Colorado.  Starting from Zero, the Super Suave Story is in process of being made, according to filmmaker Timothy Paynter.  The film will chronicle four immigrant band members and their rise in the music world as the local band, Super Suave.


“What does starting from Zero mean to you?” film maker Paynter recently asked.  “You will be surprised at the answer lead singer Alejandro Leharrazo gives to this question.” Paynter continued.

Paynter said starting from scratch, by walking through the desert to the U.S., takes on a new meaning when you are an immigrant.  Everything is harder to do since many immigrants don’t speak the language.

“The deck is completely stacked against immigrants making it in America.” Paynter noted.  “Yet here are four people who came to the U.S. with little or nothing and they are reaching for the stars.  If they can do it, you can do it too!”  Paynter said.

The group Super Suave has gained local notoriety in the West through brilliant marketing and by adapting conventional rock songs to a Cumbia beat.  For example, the band adopted the McCoy’s song, “Hang on Sloopy” to “Hang On Loopy“.    They took photographs with antique cars dressed in period clothing to advance their first album.

Paynter said “Starting from Zero, The Super Suave Story” should be available later this year.  Check back on the website for news and tune into 1150 am radio at noon on Mondays to Un Dia Sin Fronteras and Podemos Mejorar for more information.  Click the “On Air” button to hear the show live anywhere in the U.S.

Chevela Vargas, Have You Seen This? Lesbian Latina Singer RIP

Ranchera, Musica, Mexican-Singer, tim-paynter

tim-paynter, chevela-vargas

ranchera, tim-paynter

She was the godmother of Ranchera. Now she is a legend leaving her music to live on in her stead. Vargas was a rough and tumble lady of the ranch in a time when ladies didn't do those things, like wear jeans, drink and all of that man stuff. Despite popular criticism, Vargas lived life like a tiger and her legend will continue in her stead.

Some think she is of Mexican descent because of the country songs she was fond of belting out.  Not true.  Vargas was born in San San Joaquin De Flores, Costa Rica as Isabel Vargas Lizano.  She adopted a common name for the formal name Isabel, Chevela.

Jose Alfredo Jimenez, one of the godfathers of ranchera music, convinced Chevela to do her first album as he performed with her.  It was to be one of over 80 albums.  Her raspy voice and insistence on living like a true Latina ranch woman made her a near instant hit within the Latino community.  Her admission she was a lesbian at the age of 83, while being controversial, didn't seem to cost her any fans.

Chavela passed away at the age of 93 after being admitted to the hospital in Cuernavaca, Morlos, Mexico for heart and respiratory problems.


RIP Chevela Vargas
